Welcome to day three of Pre-Tweed extravaganza!
Per usual, check out the ride and party event registration HERE, time is almost out to get in on that!
In this post, I'll list where each piece we're wearing is from, so you can start to get a better idea of the kind of beautiful vintage our generous partners at It's Vintage Darling and Pretty People Vintage have. Part of why I love vintage so much is the quality, but also the thrill of the hunt. These shops get new pieces in every day, and I love going in or getting a call that starts, "Oh hey, I have something special for you, I've been saving it!" followed by them disappearing into the back to fish out some gorgeous specimen of timeless fashion that you never knew you've always needed.
Yes, it's like THAT.
Just wait until you see what I'm wearing for the Tweed Ride, you'll die. I did. And the story's great to boot, so that makes it all better. But I'm over-excited and getting ahead of myself as usual.
So here is the the low-down:
On Emma: Hat, fox fur collar, and gold lamé top from Pretty People Vintage
Earrings in focus from It's Vintage Darling
Gorgeous array of gloves, bags and hats! All a mix, but the gloves and bags from It's Vintage Darling, and the hats are a mix from them and Pretty People Vintage
Per usual, Eric is doing Eric and dressed himself, so I don't have the slightest where anything is from.

There you have it! I'd like to extend a warm thanks for the vintage shops for lending us clothing for the shoot!
